Culture of Japan in Paris
"Japonismes 2018: les âmes en resonance" (souls in resonance) is an extensive cultural season, jointly organised by Japan and France, to showcase Japan at more than 20 venues around Paris. The event takes place from July 2018 to February 2019 and coincides with the 160th anniversary of the Treaty of Amity and Commerce between France and Japan.
The official programme includes more than 50 events in the four areas of exhibitions, stage performances, film screenings and lifestyle culture. Japonismes 2018 is also accompanied by an associate programme, which brings other Japan-related events to cities across France, enabling an even broader audience to benefit from Japonismes 2018.
